actually, christians took it from the pagan romans, who took it from the etruscans, gauls and germanics (they were indo-europeans at one point, had a lot of the same characteristics). the christians stole it from rome who stole it from these 3. but thats 1 part of christmas. there are some others. liek the christmas TREE comes from the gauls and germanics worshipping trees, believing that their gods lived within them. santa claus comes from saint nicholas, and some other english dude, and some german dude. all of christmas came from multiple places.

and this isnt my opinion simple, this is its origins...there are perhaps others, but these ones are well known, and well documented. jesus wasnt born in december, he was born in the autumn (september is the best guess).


I believe those pagan romans were called the cult of Mithras. It was most likely created christmas because it was a holiday that could appeal to several cults to convince them to convert. In fact, during the original celebration, they practiced gay sex.The middle eastern winters would have snowed and it definetely did not because shepherds would not have been able to see stars nor would they even be herding their flocks.

As for christmas....
All I want for christmas is you
... or a sheep.


the cult of mithraism was one of about big religions in rome at the time, but only males (and really only soldiers) believed in it. there was also the cult of isis, the followers of osiris, jews from the provinces, but most pronounced was the roman religion, the belief in their pantheon. they had the feast even before mithrasism popped up (back when it was still a religion called zoroastrianism).

the wii is way more powerful than any of the current gens. and while power is nice, power doesnt make a console. look at how much the ps2 owned the xbox, which was close to 2x as powerful

Christianity has been borrowing holidays for a while. Christmas was one and Halloween was another. Not really anything new here.
The catholic church wanted to convert people. People wanted to keep old traditions. Catholic church let them keep it but they kept their Christian version.
Besides it is not the only belief that is probably not on the right date. There is much contradictory evidence to the Thanksgiving being on the wrong day and that goes with hannakah (I know I spelled it wrong) and Kwanza isnt very much even an holiday (not to offend but study it and you will see I am right. So just enjoy the time of year if you dont believe it and if you do enjoy it like I will.
Edit: stupid me forgot to put what I want.
I want a helicopter so I can fly to school and go all killer on people I dont like. I mean dude how sweet would it be to be like "you remember John that loser, Yeah I took him out with a helicopter."
That would be funny and their face would be priceless

i cant stand all the fucking commercialism. all these idiots who pretend to be happy, because its the holidays. who buy shit for people they dont give a fuck about, because its so taboo not to. people who go to see their families who they cant stand, just because its the holiday season.

only reason i go see my family at all is because i like hanging out with my brother, i like the free food, and once in a long while i have fun getting drunk with my crazy italian/german side of the family.

fuck the holidays. and fuck anyone who likes the holidays. in fact, fuck everyone but me.

im just that cool

(and for you pussies who cant take a fucking joke, im kidding)

I agree simple eyes it is and Haddon I got it.
Anywho I agree though Christmas is a little to commercialized and it gets quite annoying about all that they do. Christmas is not about the gifts and like Haddon said about seeing people you dont like but is about family and celebrating Jesus. IT has turned into something way different but what can you do to stop it. oh well.

i dont think it should have anything specifically religious placed on it. i mean, christians do, catholics do, but for most people its not at all.
